I want to be able to use joomla 1.6, not joomla 1.5, with a free web host, but I haven’t found a good one yet. I can install joomla 1.6 manually, but I really don’t WANT to, and most free web hosts won’t let me because of the file size of the joomla zip file (around 7 mb). Does anyone know of a FREE webhost I can use that either has an easy joomla 1.6 installer or will let me install zip files big enough to cover manually installing joomla 1.6?
Oh, and I’ve already tried byethost, awardspace, eu.pn, and a couple others. (:
I don’t recommend using free web hosting but if you must check out http://www.thefreehosts.com From reading you description of how you are trying to install Joomla 1.6 I think your problem is uploading a zip file to try and install it. You have to unzip the zip installation and then upload all of the files to the proper directory not upload the zip file. Once you have uploaded all of the files create a mysql database for the Joomla 1.6 installation then run the installation and put in the mysql database information.
